Alan Poteet 

Board President

As a minister and hospice chaplain, a husband of 37 years to my late wife Becky and a father of four daughters, much of my life has been devoted to encouraging and empowering people to become what they were created to be. A significant part of this work has been focused on assisting under-resourced people. My faith leads me to give to others what I have generously received. I am honored to be a part of the Glocal organization where these values are lived out in a practical way.


Destiny Velasquez

Board Secretary & Treasurer

I believe Glocal can make a significant impact on the quality of life of people in the community. Glocal has the potential to help with immediate housing needs, but more importantly, Glocal will build a sense of community while helping people rediscover their personal worth and dignity. In my free time, I enjoy reading, exploring nature, and hope to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to make a difference in the lives of families struggling with addiction. 


Christie Whittington

Founder & Board Vice President

For the last several years I have dreamed of starting a nonprofit aimed at the housing crisis. The need for affordable housing is clear and I am privileged to serve my community and excited to expand affordable housing across the globe. As a wife and mother of 3, I stay busy but always love to hike, read and drink coffee like its going out of style.
